-ed, the goldman sachs ceo says the obama administration should model itself after the roosevelt administration, back to the great depression and world war ii. blankfein notes in the 19 there was, quote, extreme bitterness between the business community and the roosevelt administration, but two sides worked together and spurred an increase in industrial production that lifted the united states out of the great depression. blankfein also writes there's more than $1 trillion of cash sitting on the balance sheets of non-u.s. financial companies with certainty about tax rates, companies will increase their capital expenditures, currently at anemic levels. he goes on to add that broadening the personal income tax base by closing loopholes will generate substantial additional revenue while minimizing increases in marginal rates that could stifle risk taking and robust growth. blankfein also stresses the importance of restoring confidence in public finance by implementing spending cuts, entitlement reform, and revenue increases. in the meantime, richard fisher tells cnbc that the central bank can't do
, obamacare effects our employee practices as far as benefits we can provide. i noticed that the obama administration is targeting businesses like papa john's pizza, comment openly and honestly saying you add exspent spences to business, the business has to react. it is so naive to watch different callers say different things. there's a pot of money that comes in, that's rf new. there is a pot of expenses that goes out, those are your expenses, every business and family in america starts with the revenue, prioritizes the expenses, and has something left over to live on. these tax policies, when we roll out the--frankly the press, and i'm not on a tangent on liberal media, using the term it's only going to affect the upper 2% of taxpayers, you really got to flesh that out. i hope the congressman would, too. two represent maybe 40% of all the taxes raised. i would like to seat republicans -- we are talking about 40% of all revenue raised. not get into a 2%. reasonable people who make 50 grand are going $250,000 that's a lot to me. if you are only talking about the upper two people, we ar

ryan is dismissing suggestions that president obama's victory gives his administration a mandate to raise taxes on the rich. returning to capitol hill yesterday for the first time since the election, ryan pointed the republicans keeping control of the house as a sign that the country isn't sold on the democrats' agenda. take a listen to this. >> whether the people intended or not, we've got divided government. >> you don't think there's a mandate here? >> i don't because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these ideas that we talked about, i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. and unfortunately, divided government didn't work very well the last two years. we're going to have to make sure it works in the next two years. that means, i think, that both parties have to talk to each other. >> but could you see yourself supporting a plan that raises tax rates? >> i'm not for raising tax rates. >> so you won't support a plan? >> i don't want to get into negotiating with the media, but i do not support rais
terms. we endorsed obama the first time around. frankly i have been a democrat my entire life. having said that, had enough exposure to the administration fairly close up to the president and his closest aide and they came to the conclusion that these people just don't know what they're doing. there is a saying we have in canada but those that follow. if you're going to try cross-country skiing the first time, pick a small country. get somebody there who knows how to run something. unfortunately there is another one, if you can't put the puck in the net, get off the ice. neil: thank you, gentlemen, all. i do think that crystallizes what is going on here when one side can't even think. they're serious about loopholes, just like ronald reagan and come away believing that ronald reagan did you would rather get most than risk not getting any. things were a lot better than when he came in. we will have more after this. i always wait until the last minute. can i still ship a gift in time r christmas? yeah, sure you can. great. where's your gift? uh... whew.

of his cabinet. >> reporter: president barack obama will likely be asked when he knew his cia director was under any investigation and about his cover up. they will face some tough questions about what it means for his administration and whether he still has confidence in general john allen. and jill kelley is concerned over e-mails that led to an affair between general david petraeus and his biographer -- biographer paula broadwell. they are furious they had to learn about the investigation through the media. >> i understand protecting people, i don't understand doing this all under a cloud of secrecy. >> reporter: of course president barack obama had hoped to use today's conference to focus on his second term priorities and deal with his vision of how to deal with the fiscal cliff. allison burns, ktvu channel 2 morning news. >>> san francisco police are searching for a man who slashed immune any passenger with a night. it happened sunday afternoon. the started with an argument between twoment one slashed the one man on the hand and ran on the bus. that victim was not seriously hurt.
that obama was unaware of the investigation but also the culture in washington where trusted officials are behaving badly. all this is placing a lot of pressure on the president's team. not only will the administration need a new c.i.a. director, they'll also need to replace hillary clinton as circumstance of state and -- as secretary of state and there is talk of bringing in senator john kerry as secretary of defense. some conservatives are criticizing that decision, calling it an odd choice and saying he would do better as secretary of state. for that job though, the president is considering u.n. ambassador susan rice. g.o.p. strategist see this as a chance to re-examine the administration's handling of the attacks in benghazi. senior republican aide who spokane onomously to the "new york times" called rice the poster child for the idea of a white house cover-up. >>> the senate rarely rejects a cabinet pick but this could be a long and painful process ahead of president obama. more bill press is coming up after the brea
about it, the only reason we didn't have immigration reform during the bush administration is because two gentlemen, rahm emanuel in the house and barack obama in the senate decided to vote for an amendment to the immigration bills that actually help the union. they were backed by the unions, and they decided that they would poison the well by voting for those amendments that killed immigration reform. nobody talks about that in the immediate, but it was liberal labor unions and those barack obama in the senate who decided to poison the well. he did it again this time, and i think as republicans we have to be smarter than we have been on this issue in the past. we have to look past the easy of the other side and find a rational solution to immigrati immigration. >> i find common ground with that analysis, raul, and i think also that marco rubio has done a very good job of articulating some of the things that emerged from this white house, and not, not, i don't know that you can, you can make a very strong case that republicans have been hostile on this dialog so much as it has been th
